Perfect title for this absolutely delightful piece. I enjoyed this.
I enjoyed reading this piece. It was real and honest. It expresses that sometimes people don't value what they do have, like those who had siblings and didn't appreciate them. I think this revelation led the narrator to be content with her "only child" status, and also instill the value of having siblings in her children, who did enjoy that luxury, so as not to take it for granted. This story was very well-done.
